Painting #0211 Arctic I

Unframed, oil on unknown paper, 7.5 cm x 12.6 cm

unsigned original by Bill Mason circa 1980


".When travelling overland it is a great luxury to be on rock but complete misery to be in muskeg. Because of the permafrost, there is nowhere for the water to go, and it sits in pools and slowly evaporates When the sun shines, the temperature can be uncomfortably hot, bringing out hordes of mosquitoes. When the skies are dull and wind-blown, it can be very cold, even in summer. Despite all this, the Barren Lands have a strange beauty, and I forget the hardships and long to return..." Bill Mason, Canoescapes
